22 Years of Sea Surface Temperatures
The NOAA polar-orbiting satellites (POES) have been collecting sea surface temperature data for over 22 years. This animation is a compilation of that data from January 1985 - January 2007. Of note are the changes in the Gulf Stream, El Nino and La Nina cycles in the Pacific, and the seansonal changes in sea ice cover.

Essential Climate Variables: Sea surface temperature
Within ESA’s Climate Change Initiative, expert Chris Merchant of the University of Reading, UK, explains the importance of sea surface temperature as an Essential Climate Variable to understand our changing world.
17: Sea Surface Temperature
One of the amazing properties of water on Earth is that water has the highest heat capacity of just about any natural substance known. It takes months for the Atlantic waters to absorb the intense tropical sunlight, but during the process an amazing amount of energy is stored in the water. This energy makes its way into tropical storm clouds when water evaporates from the ocean surface. Water molecules are in essence "mobile solar collectors" that transfer the ocean's energy into clouds, where the energy can then power a hurricane.

Sea surface temperature - Video Learning - WizScience.com
"Sea surface temperature" is the water temperature close to the ocean's surface. The exact meaning of "surface" varies according to the measurement method used, but it is between 1 mm and 20 m below the sea surface. Air masses in the Earth's atmosphere are highly modified by sea surface temperatures within a short distance of the shore. Localized areas of heavy snow can form in bands downwind of warm water bodies within an otherwise cold air mass. Warm sea surface temperatures are known to be a cause of tropical cyclogenesis over the Earth's oceans. Tropical cyclones can also cause a cool wake, due to turbulent mixing of the upper 30 m of the ocean. SST changes diurnally, like the air above it, but to a lesser degree due to its higher specific heat. There is less SST variation on breezy days than on calm days. In addition, ocean currents such as the Atlantic Multidecadal Oscillation , can effect SST's on multi-decadal time scales, a major impact results from the global thermohaline circulation, which affects average SST significantly throughout most of the world's oceans. Coastal SSTs can cause offshore winds to generate upwelling, which can significantly cool or warm nearby landmasses, but shallower waters over a continental shelf are often warmer. Onshore winds can cause a considerable warm-up even in areas where upwelling is fairly constant, such as the northwest coast of South America. Its values are important within numerical weather prediction as the SST influences the atmosphere above, such as in the formation of sea breezes and sea fog. It is also used to calibrate measurements from weather satellites. Wiz Science™ is "the" learning channel for children and all ages.

Sea surface temperature anomaly timeline: 1982-2017
El Niño is an irregularly recurring climate pattern characterized by warmer than usual ocean temperatures in the equatorial Pacific, which creates a ripple effect of anticipated weather changes in far-spread regions of Earth. This visualization captures sea surface temperature anomalies around the world from 1982 to 2017, along with a corresponding time plot graph that represents average equatorial sea surface temperatures in the Pacific Ocean from about the International Date Line to the coast of South America. Highlighted in the timeline are the El Niño years in which sea surface temperature anomalies peaked: 1982-1983, 1997-1998, and 2015-2016.

Seamounts/vulcanism, upwelling and sea surface temperature anomalies
Recorded on 9.19.2018 End chopped off. I was saying my mind wants to connect the sea surface temperature anomalies in a circular fashion in the southern hemisphere...with the seamounts, but cannot substantiate that at this time. I personally believe that the seamounts are important to monitor. They are not confined to "salt water" basins only. Extreme sea temperature variations in close proximity of one another, caught my attention. links on the way nullschool.net https://earth.nullschool.net/#current/ocean/primary/waves/overlay=sea_surface_temp_anomaly/orthographic=-14.24,-57.58,253/loc=27.979,62.483 seamounts/southwest and southeast indian ridge (search) https://www.google.com/search?biw=1067&bih=521&tbm=isch&sa=1&ei=0GChW7zqIKvYjwTtzrXQDg&q=seamounts%2Fsouthwest+and+southeast+indian+ridge&oq=seamounts%2Fsouthwest+and+southeast+indian+ridge&gs_l=img.12...380971.393463..400162...1.0..0.147.1818.0j15......1....1..gws-wiz-img.xlTboQkRNOk#imgrc=_&spf=1537383387873 Earth Changing Extremities https://yamkin.com/category/earthquake/southwest-indian-ridge/ Southwest Indian Ridge (SWIR) https://alchetron.com/Southwest-Indian-Ridge#- Litvin Seamount: Undersea Features https://geographic.org/geographic_names/name.php?uni=10649958&fid=6443&c=undersea_features#UFI Finland Sea Temperature http://seatemperature.net/country/finland Ekenäs, Finland https://www.google.com/maps/place/Jyv%C3%A4skyl%C3%A4,+Finland/@61.5996661,25.7487359,6z/data=!4m13!1m7!3m6!1s0x468d0782b937418b:0x2600b5523c18d102!2sEken%C3%A4s,+Finland!3b1!8m2!3d59.9741851!4d23.4375724!3m4!1s0x46857415d1a93119:0xba57697d6790a2d7!8m2!3d62.24235!4d25.7478333?hl=en finnish lakeland water temperature (search) https://www.google.com/search?num=40&source=hp&ei=8eehW8nlDdiojwSJh5aABw&q=finnish+lakeland+water+temperature&oq=Finnish+Lakeland+water+t&gs_l=psy-ab.1.6.33i22i29i30l10.2234.13500..17891...0.0..0.165.1147.1j9......0....1j2..gws-wiz.....0..0j0i22i30j33i160j33i21.pLA40q05E8w Any gestures of good faith will help me...help others.

Gulf Stream Sea Surface Currents and Temperatures [720p]
This visualization of the Gulf Stream was produced using NASA/JPL's computational model called Estimating the Circulation and Climate of the Ocean, Phase II or ECCO2. ECCO2 is high resolution model of the global ocean and sea-ice. ECCO2 attempts to model the oceans and sea ice to increasingly accurate resolutions that begin to resolve ocean eddies and other narrow-current systems which transport heat and carbon in the oceans.The ECCO2 model simulates ocean flows at all depths, but only surface flows are used in this visualization. There are 2 versions provided: one with the flows colored with gray, the other with flows colored using sea surface temperature data. The sea surface temperature data is also from the ECCO2 model. The dark patterns under the ocean represent the undersea bathymetry. Topographic land exaggeration is 20x and bathymetric exaggeration is 40x.

NASA | The Ocean: A Driving Force for Weather and Climate
The Ocean is essential to life on Earth. Most of Earth's water is stored in the ocean. Although 40 percent of Earth's population lives within, or near coastal regions- the ocean impacts people everywhere. Without the ocean, our planet would be uninhabitable. This animation helps to convey the importance of Earth's oceanic processes as one component of Earth's interrelated systems. This animation uses Earth science data from a variety of sensors on NASA Earth observing satellites to measure physical oceanography parameters such as ocean currents, ocean winds, sea surface height and sea surface temperature. These measurements, in combination with atmospheric measurements such as surface air temperature, precipitation and clouds can help scientists understand the ocean's impact on weather and climate and what this means for life here on Earth. NASA satellites and their unique view from space are helping to unveil the vast... and largely unexplored.... OCEAN. NASA Earth Observing System Data and Information Systems (EOSDIS) EOSDIS is a distributed system of twelve data centers and science investigator processing systems. EOSDIS processes, archives, and distributes data from Earth observing satellites, field campaigns, airborne sensors, and related Earth science programs. These data enable the study of Earth from space to advance scientific understanding.

Average Weekly Sea Surface Temperature Anomalies During El Niño
The animation shows the progression of sea surface temperatures anomalies (SSTas) during the 2015-16 El Niño event. Through a complex feedback, decreasing easterly winds along the equator during an El Nino create less upwelling of colder deeper ocean water and hence are associated with higher temperatures (red). The warmer temperatures affect the overlying air reducing the pressure of the air. This reenforces the the wind circulation changes and the temperature continues to increase. The change in the ocean temperatures impact convection (rain) in the tropics which in turn can impact the atmosphere away from the tropics towards mid-latitudes.

Sea surface height anomaly
El Niño is characterized by unusually warm ocean temperatures in the eastern equatorial Pacific. The warmer water associated with El Niño displaces colder water in the upper layer of the ocean causing an increase in sea surface height because of thermal expansion. This visualization, created using a sea surface height anomaly product produced by AVISO, shows sea surface height anomalies (SSHA) from January 1, 2015 to January 22, 2016. The maps have been processed to highlight the interannual signal of SSH, i.e., the mean signal, seasonal signal, and the trend have been removed. Red and white shades indicate high sea surface heights relative to the reference state, while blue and purple shades indicate sea surface heights lower than the reference state. Neutral conditions appear green. After five consecutive months with sea surface temperatures 0.5 degrees Celsius above the long-term mean, NOAA issued an El Niño Advisory to declare the arrival of the phenomenon. A statement issued by the NOAA Climate Prediction Center on March 10, 2016, states that "A transition to ENSO-neutral is likely during late Northern Hemisphere spring or early summer 2016, with close to a 50 percent chance for La Niña conditions to develop by the fall.” More information: http://www.aviso.altimetry.fr/en/data/products/sea-surface-height-products/global.html

Sea Surface Temperature Anomaly Data, 1980-1999
Rather than plotting sea surface temperatures, sea surface temperature anomalies have been plotted here to show the dramatic departures from normal that are associated with El Nino and La Nina from 1980 - 1999. El Nino is the warming of the Pacific Ocean off of the western coast of South America near Ecuador and Peru. It is called El Nino, or little boy in Spanish, referring to the Christ child because the phenomena usually occurs near Christmas time. The opposite of El Nino is La Nina, or little girl in Spanish, which is a cooling of the Pacific Ocean. The red shading signifies a warming of the ocean by 5-10°F, the green shading is normal and the blue shading is a cooling of the ocean by 5-10°F. Play video of SST Anomaly visualization El Nino Sample from 3/30/97 through 6/10/98 In strong El Nino years, a prominent red band indicating warmer water extends out into the Pacific Ocean. Observed El Nino years include 1982-1983, 1986-1987, 1991-1992, 1993, 1994, and 1997-1998. The series of El Nino's in the early 1990's was unusual because they were spaced so close together, though they were all relatively weak. The most notable El Nino years include 1982-1983, 1986-1987 and 1997-1998. In fact, the 1997-1998 El Nino was so strong that it started to gain national attention. The effects of a strong El Nino include a wetter than normal season in most of the United States, though the Pacific Northwest states tend to be drier. An El Nino affects the weather worldwide. Indonesia and the Philippines, for example, are drier than normal during El Nino and have increased risk of forest fires while East Africa experiences much wetter conditions from March through May. La Nina has the opposite effect as El Nino, causing the United States to be drier than normal. Samples of a strong El Nino and La Nina occurrence are available as additional datasets. In these datasets, the land is true color shaded and a mask has been applied to highlight only the region off of South America.

Ocean Surface Temperature (7.2002 - 11.2009)
Sea surface temperatures have a large influence on climate and weather. For example, every 3 to 7 years a wide swath of the Pacific Ocean along the equator warms by 2 to 3 degrees Celsius. This warming is a hallmark of the climate pattern El Niño, which changes rainfall patterns around the globe, causing heavy rainfall in the southern United States and severe drought in Australia, Indonesia, and southern Asia. On a smaller scale, ocean temperatures influence the development of tropical cyclones (hurricanes and typhoons), which draw energy from warm ocean waters to form and intensify. These sea surface temperature maps are based on observations by the Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS) on NASAs Aqua satellite. The satellite measures the temperature of the top millimeter of the ocean surface. In this map, the coolest waters appear in blue (approximately 2 degrees Celsius), and the warmest temperatures appear in pink-yellow (45 degrees Celsius). Landmasses and the large area of sea ice around Antarctica appear in shades of gray, indicating no data were collected. The most obvious pattern shown in the time series is the year-round difference in sea surface temperatures between equatorial regions and the poles. Various warm and cool currents stand out even in monthly averages of sea surface temperature. A band of warm waters snakes up the East Coast of the United States and veers across the North Atlantic—the Gulf Stream. Although short-lived weather events that influence ocean temperature are often washed out in monthly averages, a few events show up. For example, in December 2003, strong winds blew southwest from the Gulf of Mexico over Central America toward the Pacific Ocean, driving surface waters away from the coast, and allowing cold water from deeper in the ocean to well up to the surface. These winds are a recurring phenomenon in the area in the winter; they are known as Tehuano winds. credit: NASA source: http://earthobservatory.nasa.gov/GlobalMaps/view.php?d1=MYD28M

Sea Surface Temperature and the Agulhas Current
This visualization from January 1, 2011 to December 31, 2013 shows sea surface temperatures (SST) associated with the Agulhas Current near South Africa at 1-kilometer (~0.6 mile) resolution. The Agulhas Current is a western boundary current that transports warm water southward in the Indian Ocean along the west coast of Africa. Near South Africa the current retroflects (or turns back on itself), called the Agulhas Retroflection, due to interactions with the Antarctic Circumpolar Current. Eddies that form as a result of Agulhas Retroflection are clearly visible in the animation. The Multi-scale Ultra-high Resolution (MUR) SST dataset, used to create this visualization, combines data from the Advanced Very High Resolution Radiometer (AVHRR), Moderate Resolution Imaging Spectroradiometer (MODIS), Advanced Microwave Scanning Radiometer for EOS (AMSR-E), and WindSat Polarimetric Radiometer.
